National Conversation on Health Inequalities: examples of local practice

Written and visual examples of work done by the National Conversation on Health Inequalities (NCHI) to reduce health inequalities.



NCHI aims to develop a common language and understanding around health inequalities and, with local partners, encourage and empower local communities to act on them.

The programme launched in 2014 with a toolkit outlining 7 principles for local conversation on health inequalities. Public Health England (PHE) have since commissioned TNS-BMRB (Taylor Nelson Sofres, British Market Research Bureau) to develop a series of practical written examples of local practice along with video/photo-stories covering:

  • housing
  • employment
  • education
  • communities

This document explains the context and approach of these examples.

For queries relating to this document and the NCHI, please contact the programme lead: Lina Toleikyte (Health Equity Unit, PHE).
